FAQs about B2B social media services
Social selling is where your organisation – or your people – use social media channels to connect with sales prospects and to promote your offering. The aim of Social Selling is to ensure that, when it comes to time to make a purchase decision, your business is top of mind. The first element is contact building – perhaps the most powerful tool which salespeople have at their disposal. It’s also quick, easy and free. By connecting with potential customers via LinkedIn Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social platforms, you immediately open up a channel through which you can provide them with information about your business, product or service.
Once a contact accepts your invitation or follows you in return, you have a (somewhat) captive audience for promoting the advantages of your products and services. As the individual has connected with you freely, chances are they relatively open to the content and messages you are providing – whether directly to them, or via a wider social platform. The Splendid team, social selling experts, can help you through this process at every step.
Once you’ve connected with a prospect via a social channel, it’s important to use your connection wisely. Rather than spamming them with broad information, be strategic and targeted. Teach, rather than sell. Uncover insights and share high-value information which will show the contact that you’re a person worth following and listening to. According to LinkedIn, one of the key ‘pillars’ of social selling is to position yourself as a trusted subject matter expert – 62% of B2B buyers respond to salespeople that connect with relevant insights and opportunities. You can do this by sharing relevant industry content, commenting on news alerts, and building your professional brand.
As LinkedIn says, the ability to measure your use of social selling is also vitally important. LinkedIn actually has a ‘Social Selling Index (or SSI)’ – a first of its kind social selling measurement, which operates on a scale of 0 to 100 based on your LinkedIn activities. In an internal study, LinkedIn found a strong correlation between achieving sales goals, and having a high SSI.
Before you embark on a journey of social selling, it’s important to create a strong and professional brand across your social media platforms. This can include uploading a professional photo, ensuring your LinkedIn profile has been well-written and is up to date, and carefully checking and censoring any content you have previously posted on any platform with which you are associated.
